Enjoy smart stay at Conrad Seoul

Conrad Seoul's fitness club, Pulse8, offers 24-hour gym service, and the swimming pool gets natural daylight.

Conrad Seoul, the new hospitality landmark in Seoul's financial district of Yeouido, provides guests with a contemporary and exotic experience by delivering modern sophistication.

The five-star hotel's concept of "Smart Luxury" is designed to make guests experience the local culture in comfortable ways and at the same time enable them to be connected with their own world ― meaning family and friends.

"Hotels have stayed more or less the same in the past decade, but people have not. It is time for a change, and we will unveil a new kind of hotel that Korea has never seen. This change is highlighted by our core value of Smart Luxury that permeates our facility for an outstanding experience," said Nils-Arne Schroeder, general manager of the hotel.

Zest, all-day dining restaurant at Conrad Seoul, features buffet at
show-cooking stations.

What represents the concept is smart in-room multimedia technology, the first of its kind in Korea. Using Apple-based technology and an all-in-one multimedia hub, guests can surf the Internet, access Facebook and Twitter, have Wi-Fi access or play personal content from their mobile devices or laptops with a 42-inch television.

Besides the multimedia system, Conrad Seoul's 434 rooms and suites in the 38-story building have state-of-the-art luxury facilities.

Conrad Seoul's rooms are super spacious, with the size starting from 48 square meters, the largest in Seoul.

A key design is the 36.5-meter spiral staircase which connects the first floor through the fifth, establishing a symbolic aesthetic tone for the entire hotel.

The hotel also features a total of 2,608 square meters of meeting and banquet space stretching three floors, including two ballrooms with private foyers and the whole floor to themselves. The Park Ballroom can hold up to 400 guests, while the Grand Ballroom has a capacity of 800 guests in banquet style. Another 11 meeting rooms called "The Studio" get natural daylight as all of them have windows. The meeting room area has residential-style kitchens for unique food and beverage offerings.

Conrad Seoul's Wellness Zone includes a fitness club, Pulse8, and the Conrad Spa. Providing 24-hour gym service all year round, the fitness club features a swimming pool flooded with natural daylight, a golf driving range and a high-quality spa facility for hotel guests and office workers nearby.

The hotel has four restaurants. The 37 Grill and Bar and the Executive Lounge on the 37th floor captivate guests with a breathtaking 360-degree vista of Seoul, including a panoramic view of the Han River.

Italian restaurant Atrio's 28-meter-high ceiling creates a spacious dining atmosphere, while three-course restaurant Zest features trendy show-cooking stations and buffet islands.

Conrad Seoul occupies one of four towers in the International Finance Center (IFC) Seoul, the first large-scale multipurpose commercial venue in Yeouido. It is directly linked to a luxury shopping mall and a theater as well as Yeouido subway station.

The hotel has implemented eco-friendly initiatives including rainwater harvesting for use in irrigation, grey water usage in toilets, solar panels to assist heating water, transparent dual-sheet glass to efficiently control temperatures indoors, and an ice thermal storage system utilizing late-night surplus electricity.
